The first two houses that my family lived in are referred to as "The Eldorado house" and "The Wagon Wheel Road house." My first three years of life were spent in the first house so I don't remember much of that place. My Mom was expecting my sister, so we moved into the Wagon Wheel Road house which was bigger. Both houses were out in the country; we didn't even have to lock our doors during the day! I loved growing up out there. Nothing but fields and no traffic. The Wagon Wheel Road house had the nickname because there was a wagon's wheel that marked the dirt road.
Speaking of wagons, one Christmas morning, I woke up to a ** Radio Flyer Red Wagon right by the christmas tree. It had a red all-steel seamless body with natural wooden stake sides. I stood in awe then jumped with excitment. ** red wagon photo is by enjae.
This photo for Shadow Show Sunday reminds me of that childhood toy. I took a photo of the wooden slats that are on our balcony. When we moved into our apartment, they were in the shower. Mold grows quickly and easily in Japan, and pretty soon the wood was growing mushrooms! EEk! My husband took them out and put them on the balcony. They hold down the safety net we put up for my cat.
